Mike Huckabee On Congressional Approval Ratings Slipping To 5%: ‘Just Barely Above A Pedophile’

A new Rasmussen report of likely voters has Congress’ approval rating (people believing they are doing an “excellent” or “good” job) at an unimaginably low 5%, with 68% of those responding thinking that Congress is doing a “poor” job. Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee went on Fox and Friends Monday morning, and noted that it places Congress, “just barely above a pedophile.”

Huckabee was then asked if it was a wise move for President Obama, as reports have suggested, to run against Congress in 2012:

“His smart move is to say, ‘Look, it’s Congress’ fault.’ There’s 535 of them, their message is divided. That’s where the Executive Branch always has the distinct advantage, and frankly, it’s going to be a tough message for his Republican challenger to overcome.”

Huckabee later added that if the Republican challenger wants to win, the best strategy would be to remind people that “this President has miserably failed them.”
